Bacteria Could Grow Futuristic 'Self-Healing' Materials

Bacteria Could Grow Futuristic 'Self-Healing' Materials | Social Foraging | Scoop.it
Living materials produced by bacteria could lead to interactive structures programmed to self-assemble into specific patterns, such as those used on solar cells and diagnostic sensors, and even self-healing materials that could sense damage and repair it.

Self-healing Solar Cells Mimic Leaves

Self-healing Solar Cells Mimic Leaves | Social Foraging | Scoop.it

"Solar cells based on organic systems have the potential to become less expensive and more environmentally friendly than silicon-based solar cells, the current industry standard. But the sun’s ultraviolet rays deteriorate  their performance. Now North Carolina State University researchers Orlin Velev and Hyung-Jun Koo have designed solar-cell devices with channels that were inspired by the branching vascular channels that circulate life-sustaining nutrients in leaves and human hands."
